- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- In the light of new research, and because Flanders was one of the most urbanized areas of the whole of Europe, where the relations between the towns and the country were particulary intensive, though underestimated, this project wants to canalize and to stimulate research on the interaction between the towns and the countryside. It focuss on the social and economic relations, institutional relations, demographic relations and the interaction between the towns and the country in the light of mentality and religion.
